Hard To Find
The last couple days have been a reality check for me in regards to my apartment search. Another reality check, it seems, in a series of many. Last night I went to look at a place that was probably about as nice a basement as I was going to find, and it was still disappointing. I don’t think I can live anywhere that I have to duck to get around in. This morning I went to see another place that was terrific in almost every aspect – except the lack of a proper kitchen. Only a bar-size fridge, no oven, two counter-top stove elements. I know I don’t cook much, but I would appreciate the option. It was really nice but simply too small. I have accepted that I am going to have to raise my limit for how much I’m willing to spend to find something above ground, but even finding places that aren’t basements to look at is proving to be more difficult than anticipated. With July rolling around, my target of an August 1 occupancy gets that much more urgent.
I was pricing flights to New York City for the Labour Day weekend, and it’s surprisingly cheap via JetsGo if you book early. Like $90 each way. Even after taxes, that’s less than $250 round trip. Okay, so it’s to Newark and not NYC proper, but that’s not a big deal. A good price is a good price. Now – does anyone know of anywhere inexpensive but not gawd-awful to stay in New York?
This afternoon was spent hacking up and rebuilding the Lake Holiday website. It looks pretty much the same, but is built better. Fuck frames! Let the people scroll.
Ticketmaster’s allotment of tickets for the Rolling Stones show are already all gone. All 150,000 of them. I am going to try and snag one from A&P, but failing that, I guess I’ll be sitting this one out. Selling out of 400,000 tickets will be quite a feat. Oh yeah, Rush are now on the bill as well.
It’s Pride weekend in Toronto. The dykes are marching! The dykes are marching!
